Raven-Symoné Has Her Partners Sign An NDA
During a recent appearance on the “Howie Mandel Does Stuff” podcast, Raven-Symoné reflected on her dating experience. The actress revealed to Mandel that she made every single partner she’s ever had sign an NDA before or during their relationship. An NDA is a non-disclosure agreement to ensure privacy, especially for celebrities.
She said, per “All of my relationships, especially – obviously – when I started dating, I had to get people to sign NDAs. It took me a while to wrap my head around it because it’s very impersonal, but someone in our position needs to do that.”
Mandel then asked Symoné when she precisely presented the NDA documents in the relationship timeline. The “That’s So Raven” star responded, “Before the naughty times come. No, I’m serious — right before the naughty time comes. Welcome to being a celebrity in Hollywood nowadays.”
Symoné added, “It’s true though nowadays, hashtags, real life, they change the dynamic of having an intimate relationship with somebody.” Many celebrities are known for their use of NDAs, both in relationships and business, like Taylor Swift, Tom Cruise, and Mariah Carey.

According to Symoné, Pearman-Maday felt the same way and was reluctant to sign the agreement. She agreed they had “something different” but eventually signed because she knew it was out of their hands. Symoné said, “We both were like, ‘This takes away the genuineness of it all, but we also understood that we live in Hollywood.”
